About The House

A Ronald McDonald House is more than just a place to stay. It offers comfort, support, a safe environment where families can interact, share their experiences and know that they will always have a shoulder to cry on. We encourage their extended families to come and visit and we host events and workshops to keep them strong and hopeful, such as 'Waffle Wednesdays'.

The House has communal lounges, kitchens, dining areas, playrooms and laundry facilities.

  • 61 en suite bedrooms

  • 2-minute walk to the children's ward

  • We need to raise £620,000 per year to keep the House open

  • It costs the Charity £25 to accommodate one family for one night

  • An average family stay is 12 nights

  • The longest time a family has stayed in our House is 425 nights

Every year, over 230,000 sick children from across the UK are treated at Birmingham Children's Hospital. The hospital has nine national specialist areas meaning people travel long distances to ensure that their children get the best possible treatment.

"It really is the worst feeling, not knowing what is wrong with your baby. It was a massive shock to realise that Wilf had something which couldn't be fixed. Because it took so long to get a diagnosis and being in hospital so far from home, we really can't imagine how we would have coped without the help of Ronald McDonald House Birmingham. For nine months they enabled us to stay close to Wilf when he really needed us."

Jo Matthews, Wilf's mum
